Magnus Donald Blackburn Bradbury represented Glasgow at under-16 and under-17 levels, Edinburgh at under-18 and Scotland at under-17 and under-18. His international under-20 debut came against the Irish in Athlone, in January 2014 and he scored his first try against Argentina in the final play-off game in the 2014 IRB JWC in Auckland.
In the absence of back-row colleague, Jamie Ritchie, Bradbury took on captaincy duties, leading Scotland to a 17-10 defeat of Ireland in the final game of the 2015 Six Nations Championship.
Magnus was selected for his second World Rugby Under-20 Championship, formerly the Junior World Championship, in 2015, and started in four of the five ties. With Ritchie named on the bench for the pool stage tie against, Bradbury was handed captaincy and led his side to Scotland under-20's first ever defeat of South American side, Argentina.
The former pupil of Oban HS then Merchiston Castle School, made his Scotland under-18 international debut off the bench against England in March 2013 and continued in the side to start in the victories over Ireland and Wales, the latter in France at the FIRA-AER age grade tournament which put the Scots in the top four in Europe at that level.
He played in the 1st XVs for both Oban Lorne and Merchiston Castle (season 2012/13) before earning an elite development player (EDP) contract with Edinburgh Rugby in summer 2013 and moving to Boroughmuir RFC. Magnus made his debut for the captial club in their Guinness PRO12 clash away to Leinster, and has since earned a fully professional contract.
His mother, Dee, is currently President of Oban Lorne RFC and a member of the Scottish Rugby Council, and his younger brother Fergus plays age grade rugby for Glasgow.
